Stage 4 with bone mets to mandible & T4 spine

jdh4 Member Posts: 1

Hello, I was diagnosed in December 2022 with what they thought was stage 2. After Pet scan it’s now stage 4. Mets to T4 spine and mandible. I’ve had one round of TCHP chemo and feeling pretty good. My oncologist hasn’t said what his plan for the bone Mets are other than adding Zometa. I’m wondering if the chemo will help the bone involvement or not? I’d love to hear from anyone who is in this situation. Thank you & Go Bkess!

    I am 8 years post treatment for breast cancer with lymph node involvement. I was just diagnosed with bony lesion in my mandible and have eval with oral surgeon next week and my oncologist is scheduling an MRI.

    jdh4 - please keep me updated on your treatment/prognosis and how you are feeling.
